The exceptional accommodation includes four bedrooms – a principal lounge, combined living room and dining room, well-appointed kitchen with adjacent utility room, four bedrooms - three double and one single – a bathroom and a shower room.
The property can be approached via the original pedestrian path from Tanfield Nook or via the Tarmacadam driveway which fronts The Common and provides parking for two cars and leads to the detached double garage.
Arriving from the former, a flagged path leads to the timber door with glazed panels which opens into the porch with exposed stone walls, tiled floor and a ceiling light. The inner glazed door and side panel opens to the split-level, L-shaped hall which has a meter cupboard, is lit by two pendant lights and warmed by a radiator.
The good-sized dual aspect lounge has a corner window allowing natural light to filter in from the front and side. The Adams-style timber fire surround has a marble inset and hearth housing a gas coals fire and, in chillier times, there is additional warmth from the skirting board radiator. There is also a television point to one corner.
The light and airy, combined living/dining room has sliding patio doors opening to the rear garden and there is a radiator, television point and more than ample room for a lounge suite. The dining area has a pendant light over the table space and a large opening with sliding tinted-glass door gives way to the kitchen, allowing this area to be totally open plan or divided when required. An arched doorway from the lounge leads through to the inner hall.
The kitchen has a large window to the side, ceiling track lighting and is fitted with a range of oak wall and base units and drawers having splash tiling between levels. The granite effect worktops have an inset on and a half bowl stainless steel sink unit and mixer tap set beneath the window. Also inset is a four-ring ceramic hob with extractor fan above and a Hotpoint double oven and grill below and the room is warmed by a wall-mounted convector heater.
The ceramic tiled flooring continues beyond the glazed door into the utility room with side window, ceiling light and radiator. The kitchen complementary units provide space and plumbing for a washing machine, dishwasher, fridge and freezer plus housing for the Halstead Buckingham gas central heating boiler.
Off the lounge, the inner hall has a ceiling light, a radiator and doors to two bedrooms and a shower room.
Bedroom one has a sliding patio door to the rear garden and a window to the side. A pendant light gives evening ambience, there is a television point and ample space for furniture.

These two bedrooms are served by the bathroom which is fitted with a two-piece suite of wash basin and panelled bath with hand shower attachment. The walls are mostly tiled, there is a wall-mounted mirror with strip light and shaver point above, a ceiling light and an extractor fan.

From Tanfield Nook, a picket gate opens to a flagged path to the porch and has lawn gardens to either side and continue to wrap around the bungalow frontage. Beech, holly and hawthorn hedges enclose the garden and feature an array of mature shrubs and specimen tree planting which include flowering cherry, silver birch, weeping willow, magnolia and spring flowering camelias. The rear garden is enclosed by conifer hedging and fence panels and has a raised sun terrace overlooking a lawn area with flower and shrub borders. A block paved path leads to a gated access to the Tarmacadam driveway which provides parking for two cars and leads to the detached, brick-built double garage with up and over door, power, light and personal door to the rear. Beyond further conifer hedging, a flagged area provides bin storage space and also a home for the greenhouse and the perimeter flagged path also leads to a timber storage shed.
